REVIEW: Uncorked by Rebecca Rohman


Synopsis

A Contemporary Romance with Elements of Suspense

Chella Noon's life isn't her own. Her success as a Marketing Executive in the cosmetic division of an international conglomerate is overshadowed by a series of tragic events from a decade ago. With no family, few trusted friends and years spent on the run, she opens herself up to the possibility of a future with a sexy new real estate investor despite escalating threats from a psychotic ex determined to torment her.

Mitch Mariani never met a deal he couldn't close. So when Chella walks into his life, he will stop at nothing to prove he is worthy of her trust. But as Chella's past catches up to them and danger exposes his well-guarded secrets, his heart may not be the only thing at risk of a tragic end.



My Thoughts

Well... I think I've found a new favourite author. And genre. The synopsis states that Uncorked is "a contemporary romance with elements of suspense". The suspense is definitely there, and so is the romance. There never seemed to be a dull moment in Uncorked. There was always something happening and I was constantly trying to predict what was going to happen next. The story had a great pace and there didn't seem to be any "down time" moments.

Chella Noon is a very strong minded and independent woman. She loves her job, and work is her top priority. As her parents have passed away, her boss and his wife are the closest thing to family that she has. But Chella has a secret. One that she has kept from everyone that is close to her to keep them out of harms way. A secret that causes her to constantly pack up and move. A secret that has kept her from living life, and finding love. That is, until she was set up with Mitch.

Mitch Mariani is also strong minded. He is a successful business man, and goes after what he wants. Throughout the story, we learn that Mitch is also caring, protective, sensitive and ever so patient. It was in no way smooth sailing for Mitch and Chella. Chella's secret soon caught up with her throwing a tonne of obstacles in the way of their happiness.

Uncorked kept me riveted to the story the whole way through. It kept me guessing, kept me hoping and got me frustrated. The characters were believable and easy to connect with. There was always something happening. The feelings between Chella and Mitch were tangible. The sex scenes were tasteful and HOT! Ms Rohman certainly knows how to create a story that sucks you in to it!

I read Uncorked immediately after reading an ARC of her latest novel - A Problematic Love. It is clear that Ms Rohman certainly has a pattern with her writing. Besides the fact that her stories are full of twists and turns that keep you guessing, she also writes very strong, independent and business minded main female characters, and her male lead characters are just as strong minded and also protective. Oh, and Ms Rohman certainly knows how to write a sex scene!

I highly recommend giving Uncorked a read if you haven't already!
